Tyler Carter, a senior football player at Vicksburg High School, is eagerly anticipating the upcoming season and has high confidence in his team’s performance.

“We put in a lot of work and everybody’s gotten bigger, stronger, faster and we’re more confident in running our plays so I feel like we’re going to do great,” Carter said.

In 2022, Carter played a significant role in the Gator defense, contributing to several victories and helping the team reach the third round of the playoffs. With 50 tackles and five sacks that year, he earned spots on both the All-District and All-Gridiron Teams.

During the offseason, Carter focused on enhancing his strength and improving his speed off the ball, aiming to remain one of the top defensive ends in the state. He recently chose Mississippi State University over other institutions like the University of Southern Mississippi, South Alabama and Mis-Tennessee State.

While Carter has already achieved his goal of securing an opportunity to play in the SEC, he has one more objective he and his team aim to accomplish before he graduates from high school.

“The goal is to win state and that’s what we’re focused on right now,” Carter declared.
